As a result of Covid-19, all our establishments were forced to shut down temporarily as measures were undertaken to slow down the spread of the virus. A few hotels remained open in Nairobi and Mombasa and were utilized as quarantine facilities for Kenya Residents returning from overseas.
As an industry, we have always maintained very high standards of hygiene since that is a requirement of the Public Health Act, Tourism Act (under classification) and HACCP which we are a signatory of as well as part of the hygiene training team. The advent of Covid-19 has introduced additional areas which we feel will help in improving our levels of preparedness as we look after our clients in the future.
We are therefore proposing the following steps in order to ensure the health and safety of all our staff members and clients:-
Prior to reopening, we recommend that a general disinfection procedure is done by housekeeping with special consideration given to the application of cleaning and sanitation measures in all areas.
Frequent disinfection of building entrances, public areas, rooms, back of house areas, vehicles and special attention is given to high touch areas.
HOTEL LEISURE FACILITIES (Swimming pools, kids club, spa, gym …etc.)
